Closure & Relocation of Swanland GP surgery
If you are a patient at the Swanland Surgery, or you know someone who is, be aware that a consultation is now ongoing with the proposal being to close the surgery and relocate it to opposite the Spire Hospital in Lowfield Road, Anlaby. For further details see http://www.willerbysurgery.com/Surgery-Premises.html.

It should be noted that PATIENTS ARE NOT BEING CONTACTED individually about this.

If you were unable to attend the consultation event you can still make your views known to the GPs by emailing feedback@willerbysurgery.com or by downloading and completing the feedback form available at www.willerbysurgery.com/Surgery-Premises.html.

Please send a copy of your email to our ward councillors via julie@southhunsleyward.info and our MP david.davis.mp@parliament.ukdavid.davis.mp@parliament.uk

Ward Councillor Julie Abraham recorded the views of some of those attending as they left the Hall. Many saw the move it as inevitable and had some advantages but constructive suggestions included:

Retention of some form of consulting room within the village, possibly within the pharmacy (which many thought its existence might be threatened).

Provision of some form of transport possibly on a voluntary basis (the proposed location is not in central Anlaby but a good 10 minute walk away). Many people had no form of personal transport.

It should be realised that the NHS and doctors are not regulated by ERYC or the Parish Councils although our Ward Councillors will strive to represent your views. The regulating body is the Quality Care Commission (CQC).

Swanland Village Signs Project
In 2009 the SVA started erecting village signs depicting a Swan on a blue background in an oval gold frame. They measure approximately one metre across with the village name in green and gold underneath and cost over £2000 each.

The Parish Council have agreed to fund the final & 7th sign for Woodgates Lane.

Please do not pollute the Pond
Please do not throw ANYTHING into the village pond - as well as litter, traffic cones and the usual debris this includes unwanted water plants and fish. The pond group should be consulted about any form of wild life or plants being introduced. If you want to feed the ducks Please use grain. Proper duck food is available from the Peppertree florist.
